Overview:

Sequim Bay State Park is almost as dry as the city of Los Angeles, receiving an average of only 1 more inch then the sun soaked Hollywood mecca of all things glam. Where LA has a culture known for fun in the sun, high end clothes driven by people in expensive convertibles and also happens to be the home of true gangster rap and the love of money, the area at Sequim Bay State Park is known for a different color green. Near to the Rain-forest  the hills and mountains next to Sequim Bay State Park are lush green, with blooming rhododendrons neighboring trails leading to waterfalls and mountain peaks.

 

The Park itself is nice enough, with camping and water access also available, but I feel the draw, besides the fact you can moor your boat at the docks if you choose to sail around the Peninsula, is the location. This area of the Olympic Peninsula is special, somehow defying the rest of the Peninsula and allowing not only the suns warmth, but a feeling that is so unique to the area it is indescribable in words, but if you have felt it, you feel it now. With views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and often Mount Baker, this campground is a little more special than others. Catching a sunrise and a sunset over a fire with a cold beer or glass of wine out here will be a memory for a lifetime.

The location of this park is what makes it great. A short drive to the Olympic National Park, a tank of gas away from being able to climb a mountain, moments away from a casino in one direction to a city with more parks, quaint stores and great coffee in the other. Sequim Bay State Park is a nice place to spend the evening and sleep, but the true action is right up the hill, just a few miles from camp.
